I have not tried this recipe. I got it from Pinching Your Pennies. The recipes calls for 1/2 cube butter.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 -3 lbs red potatoes
  • 12 cup ranch dressing
  • 12 teaspoon butter
  • 6 slices bacon, fried and crumbed
  • 12 cup parmesan cheese
  • 12 cup Italian seasoned breadcrumbs


  1. Boil potatoes until tender. Drain.
  2. Add ranch dressing, butter, and bacon. Smash or whip until it's the consistency you like (I like mine with chunks of potato still present).
  3. Place in a casserole dish and top with parmesan cheese and bread crumbs. Bake or broil just until the top is lightly brown.

Love it! I have made this twice now, and it's become a family favorite. Very easy to put together, especially since I cheated and used Real bacon bits! This recipe will be getting a lot of "plate" time in our house. Thanks for sharing!

Very good potatoes! I used a pkg. of dry ranch dressing, and added milk. I also about 1 tablespoon of melted butter instead of the 1/2 teaspoon. Served this with grilled salmon. Delicious!

This recipe was easy make and we all loved them. The only thing I changed I added chives and I didn't have bread crumbs, so I used crackers & added Italian season to the cracker crumbs. I will make this recipe again
